What is the good life?
Some people may believe that having extreme wealth, beauty, power and prestige equal a good life.
Researcher states that it is quite incorrect.
The good life should be referred to as the factors that contribute most to a well-lived and fulfilling life.
And using signature strengths every day to produce authentic happiness and abundant gratification (Seligman, 2002).
3 elements of good life:
Positive connections to others can include the ability to love, the present of altruistic concerns, the ability to forgive and the presence of spiritual connections to help create a sense of deeper meaning and purpose in life.
Positive individual traits can include a sense of integrity, the ability to play and be creative, and the presence of virtues such as courage and humility.
Life regulation qualities are those that allow us to regulate our day to day behavior in such a way that we can accomplish our goals while helping to enrich the people and institutions that we encounter along the way. These qualities include a sense of individuality or autonomy, a high degree of healthy self control, and the presence of wisdom as a guide to behavior.
Ya, the good life must include relationships with other people and with the society as a while. The good life not just as an individual achievement that is removed from the social contect.
Actually I am doing my revision for final exam now^^
I believe I got a good life so far, however good life is a process so we should keep contributing.
